What Size Tires Are On A 2015 Nissan Versa?

Your 2015 Nissan Versa’s original tire size is P185/65R15 86H. Below is a color-coded description of the tire size for the 2015 Nissan Versa.

The tire size was created to accommodate rims or wheels with a diameter of 15 inches.

With a load index of 86, this tire can support an object weighing no more than 1166 pounds (530 kg). A greater number indicates that the tire can support more weight. Lower values indicate the reverse.

This figure indicates that the aspect ratio of your tire is 65%. In other words, 65% of the width is represented by the sidewall height of your tire (measured from the rim’s edge to the tread). The sidewall height in this instance comes out to be 120 millimeters.

This letter indicates the design of your tire. About 99% of all tires sold today are made using the traditional manufacturing type, radial.

The highest speed that may be maintained for 10 minutes on this tire is 130 mph (210 km/h), according to its speed rating of H. A faster pace becomes risky.

Which tire size fits a Nissan Versa?

195/65R15 all-season tires are included as standard equipment on the Nissan Versa. Allow us to explain how this string of numbers and letters relates to size if you’re curious how it works.

  • The width of the tire in millimeters is indicated by the first digit in this tire size sequence, which is 195. The Versa’s standard tire is 195 millimeters wide, or almost eight inches.

You can choose between a tire that is broader for better stopping ability on dry roads and a tire that is narrower for better traction on slick conditions.

  • 65: The second number, which represents the aspect ratio of the tire, appears after the first number, followed by a slash. Tire height and tire width are compared to arrive at this figure. The sidewall here makes up 65% of the tire’s width.
  • R: The tread pattern of your tires will be denoted by a letter in the next section. The “radial” construction denoted by the “R” in this tire size refers to the cord piles running perpendicular to the direction of movement.
  • 15: Your tire’s diameter is indicated by this final number in terms of inches. Wheel size is directly correlated with this value. For instance, these common tires are mounted on 15-inch steel wheels.

What do the three numbers on a tire size signify?

Tire width, B The tire’s width in millimeters (measured from side to side, with the tire facing you) is indicated by the three-digit number that comes after the letter. The section width is another name for this. Aspect Ratio: C The two-digit aspect ratio is separated from the tire width value by a forward slash.

Can the same rim be used with different tire sizes?

Your car’s performance may be impacted by the condition of your tires, which are also necessary for safe driving, turning, and braking. You might be wondering if you can buy different-sized tires while still using the same rims if you are not content with the tires you now have.

As long as the tire and rims have the same internal diameter, you can change the size of your tires while keeping the same rims. However, because tires are flexible, the width and height can be altered. When selecting tires, be sure to pay close attention to the manufacturer’s specifications.

Understanding how tire specs operate is the key to adjusting your tire size. Once you comprehend the system used by all tire manufacturers, you should be able to locate tires that will fit your rims. I’ll demonstrate how to achieve it in this piece.
